I have a two month old baby girl named Ellie. I feel hopless because she has a severe case of reflux and it puts me tears almost daily. She has exteremly painful cry after every feeding and her doctors will not tell me if this is normal. Ive never heard such a cry from a baby before. My family is convinced there is seriously something wrong with her. Her doctors are no help to us and i am praying for help. Is this normal? Thank you for your time.
In recent years soy has emerged as a ânear perfectâ food, with supporters claiming it can provide an ideal source of protein, lower cholesterol, protect against cancer and heart disease, reduce menopause symptoms, and prevent osteoporosis, among other things.
However, numerous studies have found that soy products may:
* Increase the risk of breast cancer in women, brain damage in both men and women, and abnormalities in infants
* Contribute to thyroid disorders, especially in women
* Promote kidney stones
* Weaken the immune system
* Cause severe, potentially fatal food allergies.
Perhaps the most disturbing of soyâs ill effects on health has to do with its phytoestrogens that can mimic the effects of the female hormone estrogen. These phytoestrogens have been found to have adverse effects on various human tissues, and drinking even two glasses of soy milk daily for one month has enough of the chemical to alter a womanâs menstrual cycle.
Soy is particularly problematic for infants, and soy infant formulas should be avoided. It has been estimated that infants who are fed soy formula exclusively receive five birth control pills worth of estrogen every day.
Google reflux and chia seed. It soaks up acid very well and can be ground up to add to a formula. Also there is for infants a product called Gripe Water. Don't know if the spelling is right. Only available in Canada Or online. My wife used it when she was had a daycare.
